The Califone CD-102 Portable CD Player is designed for anyone looking to enjoy their CDs without distraction. That being said, the good folks at Califone made sure that those in educational settings can use the player without worry too. The CD-102 comes with a 1-year limited warranty that's honored even when the CD player is used by students in schools, making it a great educational tool. Whether you're teaching students new languages or perhaps having them listen to audio books, the CD-102 is a cost-effective, practical vehicle for alternative learning.

Just install 2 'AA' batteries and the CD-102 is ready to go. You also have the option to power the player using the included power adapter. The unit's LCD display provides CD and battery information, while the onboard buttons allow for easy control. Controls include: play/pause, stop, program, repeat, and skip/search. Other features of the CD player include a 60 second anti-shock system (a must for children!), CD-R/RW compatibility, and noise-reducing headphones.

Personal CD Player Designed with School Use in Mind
Califone understands that a CD player made for occasional home use doesn't last like one intended for day-in and day-out school uses. The CD102 supports language learning programs and allows students of all abilities to study at their own pace

    I use this for listening to my cd collection, when I don't feel like using my computers. My unit has a different top plate, as seen on the Califone site. It has very powerful audio. The bad points: With the supplied headphones, there is little bass, unless you use BASS BOOST. Even then, there is not much improvement. If you use quality phones, the bass is OK with the boost on. A big problem is that it did not play my computer made discs, and, more importantly, one commercial title, so far. (My older players do!!) I don't understand their information on what media you can play. I probably need to buy CDs made for music, to use my computer. The program play mode is awkward. Let's say you go to track 5. When you enter it-and it is recorded ok, but the track counter goes back to 00 and you have to move forward, past 5 to get to the next track to program. The built quality is suspect--for use in schools? I doubt it!! Another point about the headphones, the cups do not fit flat on my ears. I feel that this is just another cheap chineese import.

        Comments about Califone CD-102 Portable CD Player:

        This is the best cd player I have ever used and I think I have used them all. I listen to audio books at night when I can't sleep and most of the time I go to sleep listening to them. Even when the cds are damaged it plays them perfectly. No other cd player is like that. It has wonderful sound and easy convenient controls.

              Comments about Califone CD-102 Portable CD Player:

              This is a good portable CD player for the money. It comes with a power supply which I use all of the time. The controls are okay... once you get used to them. I use it every day in the evenings in order to listen to audio books. (I don't like TV) So far in 2 weeks it is a good product. The only weakness is that it starts on the first track of a CD every time you turn it off, but I am getting used to finding where I stopped. (listening a little to areas of the book two times.) I recommend it.

              The Califone player is designed & built very well. Rugged construction. We use them in a nursing home with folks who have dementia & Alzheimers. We are pleased with the Califone players.

                My 11 year old likes it a lot. He said the buttons are placed conveniently and are easy to figure out. The skip protections works well. I like the fact that it comes with headphones and a power supply so I don't have to keep buying batteries.

                      I was excited to get this product so that i could play my cd's while at work. The product came very well wrapped and rather quickly, but i was instantly disappointed when i tried to turn it on. It was completely dead, i even tried it with the batteries alone instead of the AC adapter and nothing. I had to send it back and look for something else to take to my office. I gave this product 1 start but i'm not sure it deserves it.

                              This item is used for several hours daily within an educational setting. The earphones are able to be sanitized after each use. The AC adapter is how we use the product and some CD's I looked at had the AC jack, but you had to purchase the adapter separately. The sound is great, the product is durable and can withstand constant use, and it's very user friendly. We would purchase this item again in the future.

                                    Comments about Califone CD-102 Portable CD Player:

                                    This player is a bargain ! It is designed well, operates intuitively, comes with a very good headset and easy to understand instructions. It feels solidly built and does play cd-r discs which I burn on my computer.
